Memorial Day 2010





Immediately after the American Civil War, in 1865, several communities celebrated a day of remembrance for those who died during that brutal war. Initially called Decoration Day, the holiday soon became a national holiday of remembrance in observance of honor and the memory of all of the men and women who have died in all of the wars throughout our history.


Now called Memorial Day, and celebrated on the last Monday in May, of each year, flags are properly flown at half-mast, along with other activities, both public and private, in remembrance of those who have given their lives, so that freedom and liberty might continue for us all.


They did not die in vain, nor were they forgotten by God.


In the Bible, God has set aside His own honor and remembrance in the form of a Crown, which is eternal.


Of the five crowns of reward described in the Bible, the Crown of Life is meant for those who die and are denied a full life, due to the circumstances that are beyond their own control.


Far too often the young are called upon to lead the fight for freedom against evils and terrorism that reign upon the earth. Caring nothing for the welfare of others, evil has to be met with force, in order to quell it and prevent its destructive forces from ruining the lives of others.


In times of trouble, nations rise up and call upon the vigor of their youth, to stand against those who would destroy freedom for us all.


In many cases the ultimate sacrifice is made in defense of our freedom, the young are taken from us without the benefit of living their own lives to the fullest extent possible, that the rest of us share.


However, God does not turn His head away from those who serve and die at the nations request.


But instead God gives honor to those fallen, to a much greater extent than any of us are capable of, with the award of the Crown of Life. This award is not limited to those in the military, for certainly there are many, both young and old, who face unfair circumstances that this world places upon them, and are taken from life.


Under normal circumstances, every person is given the opportunity to believe in Christ, to grow up in their spiritual life, and to become productive and prepared, ready for their evaluation before Christ, at the Judgment Seat, where rewards and blessings above and beyond the norm, are presented to those who have been faithful and obedient to the mandates prescribed throughout the Bible.


Those believers who have been taken prematurely from life, are to some extent denied that opportunity of growth and preparation, and are thus given the Crown of Life.


This crown is not a mere token, but a representation of a gift of blessings of real, actual, and eternal rewards given by God, to them, such that anything lost to life s experiences, will be thoroughly replaced by Gods grace and remembrance of their sacrifice.


Therefore, as we take one day out of the year to celebrate and remember those who have given the maximum, so that we might remain free, then remember too, that they did not die in vain. Their sacrifice has given untold myriads of people the gift of freedom and life, and the opportunity to advance in their spiritual lives, and that they have been and are always in Gods memory and possession, for greater blessings beyond anything that this world or life could possibly offer.


This Bible study is dedicated to your well being. You have only to seize hold and make it your own so that you can realize and one day enjoy the fullness of Gods promise and blessing for you, and to remember those who have gone before you.


I deeply thank you and all who have made this study possible. And to those who continue to support it and thereby make it possible and available to many around the globe, who are not so lucky in this world. From my family to yours, I wish you the very best during this holiday, and happiness in Christ that is not available anywhere else.


And now to Him who is able to keep you from falling, and to present you without blemish, before the presence of His glory, with exceeding joy. To the only wise God and savior, even Jesus Christ our Lord. To whom be glory and majesty, dominion and power, before time, now, and forevermore. Believe it, for it is so.
